The RWD SMT baseboard is a demonstration, evaluation and development board for the RWD-QT-SMT module. When fitted by the user with a RWD-QT-LP-SMT module it is also suitable as a standalone 125KHz RFID reader/writer incorporating USB interface and an internal integrated PCB antenna. The user also has the option to select by jumpers and external antenna suchas one of our ANT125K range if desired.
It is a complete reader and tag acceptance solution for passive RF transponders. The solution only needs a 5V DC supply to be a fully featured read/write system. The RWD module provides internal EEPROM memory for holding a list of authorised identity codes and system configuration parameters, a manual override switch facility and has LED drives to give visual indication of acceptance. The RWD also has a serial UART interface that allows a host system to communicate it as the user requires, so that system features can be customised, configurations changed and tag read/write data handled by a host system.
The RWD SMT Baseboard allows the user to communicate through a USB interface to a PC. The board can be connected to the USB port of a PC with a FTDI VCP (Virtual Com Port) driver installed, allowing the Windows applications to communicate with the reader module via the allocated COM port. The RWD SMT Baseboard uses the FTDI (Future Technology Devices International Ltd) FT234XD serial-to-USB converter chip. The appropriate VCP USB driver should be downloaded and installed form: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm.
